    Just How Evil is Nestle?

    Just How Evil is Nestle?

    Let’s be honest… Almost every corporation probably has skeletons in their closets. But some company’s skeletons tend to spill out of the closet at an alarming rate. Nestle is one of those. If you want to see what brands Nestle owns (for no reason in particular) check it out here.

John Tesh For The Modern Generation

I have never left a review for anything in my life so let that be a sign of how much I enjoy this podcast. Stranger Still has been a part of my weekly routine for almost two years now and it never fails to entertain me. Its a podcast of interesting facts and fun bants that really do answer the questions you never thought to ask. 10/10 would recommend. # Nick and Jon are the John Tesh for the modern generation.
